Layla got her wings

Posted in family, peace & love

At 11:30 this morning, Layla was put to sleep.

She was my son Vincent’s friend… a stray vagabond dog found wandering by the road in 2007. We don’t know how old she was, but she had gotten pretty messed up in the last year or so — she was more and more confused, her legs would let go, she was losing weight, and she no doubt suffered in silence. So yeah, it was time for her to go.

I held her in my arms while Vincent drove us to the vet’s. My son and I were together, caressing her, when she got her injection. She went softly… peacefully.

I love you, Layla!

Saturday Night in La Conception

Posted in family, road trip

Listening to ROCK 101, Vancouver’s Classic Rock radio. Now playing: One of These Nights, The Eagles.

Sitting at my son’s kitchen table in La Conception drinking pink grapefruit juice and eating pretzel sticks. Now playing: Shake it Up, The Cars.

Drawing a birthday card for my grandson who turned 7 yesterday but the party’s tomorrow at my other son’s house in Boucherville. Now playing: Is This Love, Bob Marley.

LOVE YOU

Charlie was in charge of answering the phone and guarding the beer, last month, when my son and I were painting the house.

This is me painting the bottom half.

Of course, there’s always music playing. And Charlie LOVES to sing. Here he is with The Boss doing the intro to Thunder Road. ROCK ON!

P.S.: See what the inside of my son’s house looks like in this post from July 29, 2012.

my son sings Springsteen… for me

Posted in family, videos

Tonight, my son Vincent posted this video on Facebook…
with the following message (translated from French):

“Back in the days, my mom had music blasting all through the house, at all times… mostly Springsteen. I believe that it’s thanks to her if I have this great love for music. This one’s for you, Mom… luv you xxx”

(I’m on Fire — Bruce Springsteen)

Am I a lucky mom or what?!!!

P.S. : Here’s Vincent singing Hunger Strike by Temple of the Dog.
